    When my dad was a bartender he would make me a half and half drink. Ginger ale and coca cola. So when I got older and still didnt drink I asked for a half and half and they gave me bacardi and coke.


    Amir is still a kid but he refuses to believe that mommy's do not eat the baby before it is born.

      OMG this is really funny!

      OK - you are all going to think I am dumb as rocks BUT when i was younger I thought that "Islands floated" ... yes, i really thought that islands floated and if you swam deep enough you could go under HAHAHA


      ANOTHER - my hair was super long as a child (like down to my waist) and is pretty thick. my mom says i used to give her a really hard time when she washed it b/c she would brush out the knots so she came up with the "knot lady" and told me that if i didn't let her brush out the knots, The Knot Lady would come and cut my hair off LOL - not the nicest story but my mom said i was F'in impossible and she tried everything else to no avail until she came up with The Knot Lady - i always let her comb out my hair.

        That's just so sad!

        Well, I have one from my FI:

        FFIL is German and has a fairly strong accent. FI's family teases him about it. Apparently he used to call Jello "Woggle Pudding" and FI used to laugh at him for it, because he said his dad was always making up fake words.

        Well, about 6 years ago some of FI's German cousins came to visit (twin girls) and they were all out at lunch with FI and some others and they pointed at another table and said "Ooooh can we have some woggle pudding?"

        FI just about died. Apparently the German words for Jello sound like woggle pudding. LOL...

            Islands don't float? I'm crushed! Seriously, I used to think that too Alyssa. I thought it was weird how they could put them on maps since they were always moving. DRRR

              hmm these are so great!

              i can't think of any beliefs, but i can think of a bazillion misunderstood lyrics

              ie: I crossed the lawn, and the lawn one. Down in the boombox.

              i could go on and on. i'll have to think of some beliefs.

                  I remember one my Dad used to tell me about how his mom used to tie him on to the crib. He's got really big ears, and he used to say that my nan was afraid he would try to fly away, so she would tie him to the crib by his ankle, and he would even haul down his sock and let me see the mark that she left. I was probably 16 or 17 before I realized the "scar" was because the band of his socks was a little too tight! lol

                      You know the pies they have on display at Denny's and places like that? They sit in a display box on the wall with a slanted mirror so you can see them? My friend didn't know until we were like 20 that there was a mirror - one day she asked how they got them to stick on the wall without the filling falling out?

                      LMAO!
